Perth City Link Project is one of the city’s most exciting redevelopments that reconnecting the CBD with Northbridge for the first time in more than 100 years and Yagan Square is part of this awesome project. It is the newest major public space for people to have fun, eat, play, meet, and shop. Yagan Square was opened in March 2018 officially.
The design concepts for this project have responded to Yagan Square’s vision to be welcoming, inclusive, and active cultural and civic destination representative of the local diversity and Perth region and broader Western Australia. These concepts are the representative of the convergence ideas: non-indigenous people, culture, indigenous, narratives, tracks, and geologies within the Square itself.
The wildflower gardens can show the unique and diverse qualities of West Australian flora to provide the West Australian landscape taste. There are some variety of Eucalyptus species found across the State and Perth to gardens that ables to increase the seasonal colors and characters.
In this project, water plays a major part and the unique feature of Yagan Square has been developed by Artist, Jon Tarry. Water features can provide physical and experiential enhancements to the public landscape as a sequence of connected elements. It also encourages the visitor to enjoy, feel, touch, and look.
